•Ifthelong
appliance.
•If you can smell gas, regardless of whether the appliance is going or not.
NOTE
There can be a brief smell of gas as the appliance is going through the ignition sequence, however
this should soon stop once the appliance has started.
Abnormal Flame Pattern
•If the pilot flame looks abnormal. Signs of abnormal pilot operation could be:
A very short flame that does not reach across to the flame rod.
A very long flame that reaches far beyond the flame rod or long yellow flames.
A roaring noise when the pilot is operating or the flame “lifting off” from the
pilot head.
•If there are large soot deposits that keep building up on the burner media.
is excessive noise or explosive ignition as the burner lights, this could
•Ifbethere
due to blocked burner ports.
a smell of flue gas continues after the appliance has been operating for at
•Ifleast
10 minutes. This could indicate a blocked flue or other problem. This
smell is acceptable during the first few minutes as the flue heats up and starts
to draw.
the flames change shape or colour. When the appliance first starts the
•Ifflames
will tend to be quite blue for a few minutes but will change to a more
yellow/orange colour as the system heats up, this is normal, but if the flames
either stay very blue, or turn a dark , streaky orange colour, this could indicate
a problem. Contact Rinnai for advice.

APPLIANCE GAS CONNECTION & COMMISSIONING
Once the engine has been installed and fixed to the building the gas and electricity can be connected. Some
installers elect to leave this until the decorating has been completed and the installation can be finished, remember
that the trim can not be attached until the wall lining is finished.
CAUTION
If commissioning is to be carried out after the decorating has been completed, leave a protective
cardboard cover taped to the front of the engine using a low-tack tape to prevent plaster dust and
debris from entering the engine and damaging the paint work.
Isolate the power and gas supplies before commencing work on the appliance.
Gas Connection
1.
Remove the front panels and strip all the
protective plastic film from this item.
2.
Remove the Air Diverter Panel from the front of
the Burner Assembly.
3.
Remove the burner assembly by removing the
two fixing screws in front of the burner and
pulling the tray forward and then upwards to
remove from the gas control.

4.
Low Pressure Setting: Turn ‘OFF’ the power
to the POV by separating the connector of the
two yellow wires that power the POV. The POV
will automatically default to ‘Low Pressure’
operation. Keep the high pressure adjusting
nut stationary using a 10 mm spanner. Use an
appropriate screwdriver for setting screw B.
Turning clockwise increases the outlet pressure
whilst turning anticlockwise decreases the outlet
pressure.
5.
Replace the dust cap C after pressure
adjustments.
6.
Reconnect the POV Yellow wires power
connection.
WARNING
To ensure the correct operation of the
modulating valve (POV) it is necessary
that the dust Cap C is returned to its
original location.
7.
After re-checking the pressures, turn the
appliance ‘OFF’, remove manometer and replace
the ATPP screw D. Check all connections and
test points for leaks using soapy water solutions.
8.
Turn the appliance ‘ON’ and ‘OFF’ a few times
to confirm correct ignition and operation.
9.
During the initial burn in period, some smoke
and smell may be emitted. The appliance should
be run with both the flame and fan set to high in
a well ventilated room until these dissipate.

PILOT BURNER PERFORMANCE
When operating at its best, the pilot burner will produce a sharp blue flame with a light blue inner cone. This inner
cone should reach across to the flame rod and slightly beyond. The size of the pilot flame cannot be adjusted and
is dependant on inlet pressure.
Signs of abnormal pilot operation could be:
short flame that does not reach across to the flame rod. This could be due to a reduced inlet pressure
• Aorvery
a blocked pilot injector.
• A very long flame that reaches far beyond the flame rod. This could be due an incorrect pilot injector.
noise when the pilot is operating or the flame “lifting off” from the pilot head. This could be due to
• Atooroaring
high an inlet pressure.
• Long yellow flames. This could be due to blocked primary aeration of the pilot.
NOTE
Any one of these conditions could affect the performance of the appliance (such as soot build
up on flame rod, etc) and should not be left unresolved. Contact your authorised service agent .
TRIM INSTALLATION
NOTE
The outer trim panel cannot be installed until the wall board
has been attached and finished (decorated)
REFLECTOR
EARTHING SCREW
It is recommended that the installation of the trims and
burner media is left until the room is complete and all
decoration is finished.

Leave a protective cardboard cover taped to the front of the
engine using a low-tack tape to prevent plaster dust and
debris from entering the engine and damaging the paint
work.
1.
Fit the Minimal Trim so that the two hooks in each end fit over the
screws in the side of the engine as shown below.
2.
Fix the trim in place using an earthing screw (with serrated washer) in
one end of the trim.
3.
Fit the reflectors by fitting over the front trim at an angle and then
standing up against the side of the engine. There is a catch above the
top edge of the reflector to hold it in place.
4.
Pull the two spring loaded Lower Trim Retainers forward and down
until they lock in place as shown.
5.
Fit the outer trim over the Upper Trim Hooks. If adjustment of the
hooks is required, use a screwdriver to prise the hooks forward, or
push them back until the trim fits flush with the wall.
6.
Hold the leg of the trim against the Lower Trim Retainer and push the
Retainer outwards, the spring Retainer will pull up into the bracket
on the back of the trim and back into the cavity once the bracket is
horizontal again.
WARNING
7.
Take care when the spring grabs that the trim is not resting
on the hearth as it could bite into the surface and scratch
it. Either hold the trim slightly higher or use a thin piece of
card between the leg end and the hearth.

BURNER MEDIA INSTALLATION
ONLY use the burner media supplied by the manufacturer in this appliance.
WARNING
DO NOT BURN WOOD OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL IN THIS APPLIANCE.
Logs, Coals and Granules
1.
Fit the Rear Log Locator panel (supplied with the Logs and Coals) to the back of the burner using 4 screws.
2.
Use a flat screw driver or similar to bend all of the log locating tags up wards until square to the burner.
3.
Place one coal onto each of the 23
Locating Pins. The coals are to be
located centrally and at the same
angle as the tag. Push the coals
down until they are just sitting on the
burner.
4.
Place, DO NOT POUR, all of the
supplied granules on the burner
and spread evenly across the entire
surface of the burner between the
coals.
IMPORTANT
Avoid pouring the media over the burner, as this can block the burner ports with the fine dust that
tends to settle in the bottom of the bags during shipping.
5.
Place the remaining coals (a total of
31 should be used to get maximum
efficiency) and the supplied logs and
twigs over the first row of coals.
6.
Once all the logs and coals are in
place, light the appliance and assess
the look of the flames. If there are
any areas that have very long streaky
flames then, using a pair of tongs,
move the top logs or coals to another
position until the flames are more
even across the whole burner.
Pebbles / Crystals (Crushed Glass), Where Applicable
1.
DO NOT pile glass or pebbles over the top of the pilot assembly as this could affect it performance. It may be
possible to build the media up around the pilot to hide it slightly but always check that the pilot is operating at
its optimum when finished. (Refer to “Pilot Burner Performance” on page 20).
IMPORTANT
Avoid pouring the media over the burner, as this can block the burner ports with the fine dust that
tends to settle in the bottom of the bags during shipping.
